Have a look at my listing for a baking powder jar from the same Knabstrup line: https://www.etsy.com/listing/115206063/mid-century-danish-baking-powder-jar

This ceramic jar with wooden lid for smør (butter) storage was made in the late 50's or early 60's by Danish earthenware manufacturers Knabstrup. It was designed by Johannes Hansen who designed for Knabstrup between 1953 and 1970.

It has a proverb in old Danish on it: that translates as "everyone rather sees butter in their own porrige". Knabstrup made a whole series of these jars, for herbs, spices, coffee, tea etc, each with a proverb relating to the item stored in there.

The jar itself is in mint condition, the lid has some discolouring: the top of the lid is quite a bit darker than the bottom, and is slightly stained.

It is about 6,5cm/2.6" high and its diameter is 13cm/5.1".
